Call for Tutorial
Proposals – PAKDD08
The 12th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and
PAKDD conference series has established itself as a prestigious
forum for the exchange of the latest research results in data
mining. Held annually at attractive Pacific-Asia cities, the
conference provides unique opportunities for data mining
researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore new
ideas, techniques, and tools, and to exchange experiences. The
previous events were held in Singapore, Melbourne, Beijing, Kyoto,
Hong Kong, Taipei, Seoul, Sydney, Hanoi, Singapore and Nanjing!
PAKDD 2008 will be held in Osaka, Japan. Attendees are
expected from all over the world, as is the tradition for PAKDD.
It is also expected that there will be strong local interest, and
in particular, strong interest from many local attendees in
learning about all aspects of data mining.
part of PAKDD 2008 will be the tutorial program. We invite
proposals for tutorials in all areas of data mining, including
introductory and overview tutorials as well as state-of-the-art
tutorials and data mining in-practice tutorials. Tutorials will
run for 3 hrs in total.
A tutorial proposal should
include the following information:
A brief summary of the topic
Outline including a short
summary of each section
Specific goals and objectives
Expected background of the
A biographical sketch of the
Audio Visual equipment needed for the presentation
Possible tutorial topics include
Introduction to Data Mining
KDD Process and Human
Data and Knowledge
Ubiquitous Data Mining
Data Mining in Industry
Tools for Data Mining
Stream Data Mining
Mining Biomedical Data
Mining Multimedia Data
Mining Temporal Data
Mining of Web, Community and
Social Network Data
Privacy Preserving Data Mining
KDD Process and Human
and many more - the list is
meant to be suggestive rather than limiting. The topics relevant
to the conference can be seen in the CfP
